Second and first obtainable edition.
A very fresh copy.
Bartsch was Kepler’s son-in-law. In the year following Kepler’s death in 1630, Bartsch decided to publish a more affordable edition of the logarithms from the Tabulae Rudolphinae, but publication ceased due to financial problems (Caspar records only one copy, defective, of this edition). The French mathematician Johann Caspar Eisenschmidt brought out this edition in 1700, and provided a new introduction.

references: Tomash [K28 : "Because these logarithms are not base 10, they never became popular."]; Caspar 99; Henderson p.207 no. 12.1; Houzeau and Lancaster 12757.
